The Founder

Ivonne Sanchez Bio

"Success is making those who trust in you feel beautiful"

Ivonne is a first-generation Canadian, born in St. Petersburg, Russia. Ivonne and her family left her father's home country Cuba in 1992 in search of a better life. Like many Canadians, Ivonne knows the value of hard work and the importance of community.

Ivonne is fuelled by the creativity and inspiration of fashion, boutique skincare, and cosmetic brands, and she wants everyone to find a piece of this experience through her own Permanent Makeup and Skincare services, and retail products.

As a busy mother of 2 in a blended family Ivonne has also spent 10 years working in the corporate legal industry. Driven by the belief that simple self-care is an important pillar of our well-being Ivonne curates highly effective beauty products and services, making them user friendly and accessible.
